Welcome to Scott Valley
Great views with a traditional community-oriented suburban vibe

The neighborhood is perched on an east-facing hillside above Edna Maguire Elementary School that divides Mill Valley and Corte Madera. The neighborhood is within easy reach of both these communities’ downtown areas and Highway 101. Scott Valley is comprised of large lots and homes on wide streets with great views of San Francisco and the Bay. Most homes are mid-century modern properties built in the 1960s, but there are also clusters of homes built during the 1980s and ‘90s. Scott Valley’s strong sense of community makes it an easy place to enjoy good living. If you’re looking for East Coast-style country living in the heart of southern Marin County, Scott Valley is the ideal place for you.
